Read this movie review in Variety about dachshund racing. Evidently weiner races are surging in popularity and this film takes a look at the phenomenon. However, as a dachshund mom I take issue with the sport. Long backs and short legs invite all sorts of spinal injuries - note the previous post about the paraplegic pup.
Oh, they are loads of fun to watch, and contrary to what you might think, dachshunds are fast. Ah, the beauty of a weiner dog in flight; quite a sight to behold. But don't race them - please.
The movie isn't playing in Huntsville, but please let me know if you see it!
